Natural death results primarily from a disease. Accidental death is ruled when there is little or no evidence of an intent to cause harm, and an undetermined classification is given when there is uncertainty about the circumstances surrounding the death. Learn about the death investigation processes within the three categories. Documentation and evaluation of both the scene and the body are discussed in detail, and the forensic autopsy/medical examination process of the body is also studied.
